The H1N1 Vaccine

The H1N1 Vaccine will be available soon at our clinic.

The H1N1 vaccine will offer protection against the H1N1 virus but not the seasonal flu. It is highly recommended for high risk groups like the elderly or those who suffer from chronic diseases. It is also recommended for pregnant women in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

Currently, they are still doing the trials for children so the vaccine is not approved for kids yet.

Since it is based on the same technology as the flu vaccine, it has the same safety profile as the flu jab. People who have egg allergies or have reaction to the flu vaccines should not take the jab.

The price of the vaccine is $30 nett and includes the consultation fee.

Because stocks are limited, please ring up to place your orders with our staff. Tel: 67850311. Please leave your name and contact number so that we can inform you when stocks come in. I will also update the website when stocks arrive.

Dear Dr Tay,

Is it advisable for me to get the latest H1N1 vaccination upon my return to Singapore, as I'm currently in Norway? I am heading back to Singapore in December after 5 months in Europe. I've taken the Influenza Flu vaccination before leaving Singapore.

It would be good for you to take it but not absolutely necessary.
